Icing Border Die Focused Cards with Anja and Marine

Hello everyone, Anja here and today I have a love and winter themed card for you showing you how you can use the Icicle Border Dies as accents on your project. I die cut the ric-rac border from five colors of cardstock to create a repeating design element in the background.

I started off with a white A2 card base and trimmed down a light grey cardstock panel to be 3/16 inch smaller on each side. Next, I adhered the ric-rac borders with liquid glue and cut off the excess. I also die cut one of the Stitched Hearts from lavender cardstock. For a bit of dimension, I popped it off with foam tape.

I love the versatile Bear Hugs Stamps and picked the adorable polar bear couple as well as a little heart. I stamped the images in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored them with Copic Markers. I used the coordinating die to cut out the bears. The heart was fussy cut with scissors. I adhered the images in the middle of the heart die-cut.

The scripty word 'hugs' is included in the Scalloped Oval Mats 3 Dies set and I cut it three times from white cardstock. I stacked the die cuts on top of each other and adhered it to the card. Finally, I added three clear sequins.

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Hey friends, Marine here, I'm so happy to be back on the blog with this shaker card showcasing some brand new products: the Icing Borders die set, the Thank You Words die set, as well as some autumnal pattern papers from the gorgeous Sweater Weather 6x6 paper pack.

I picked up a floral pattern paper to be the frame of my cupcake, and cut a plain cupcake using the biggest die from the Cupcake Shaped die set. Next I used the second cupcake die to cut my frame: I placed and taped it in the center of the plain cupcake, and sent it to my die cutting machine to get my floral frame.

Next I cut additional elements: three cupcake pieces out of pattern papers: a dark pink icing piece, a brown piece to make the cake and a green piece to make the cupcake liner, as well as a plain cupcake out of acetate to create the window of my shaker, and another one out of navy blue cardstock to be the base of the cupcake.

I temporarily taped the floral frame on top of the navy blue base and I attached the dark pink icing part on the cupcake base by tucking it right up against the frame.

Next I attached the floral frame to the plain acetate cupcake to create the window, and on the front of this window, I attached the two remaining pieces of cupcake: the cake piece and the cupcake liner.

At the back of the window panel, I applied thin strips of foam tape on the edges. And all along those foam strips I applied powder, this way the sequins won't stick to the foam.

Next I poured a sequin mix on the cupcake base, right on the dark pink icing section, and then stuck my window panel on top of the cupcake base to close the shaker.

I created a custom background using the Icing Border dies. I used those dies and a striped pattern paper from the Sweater Weather pack to cut lots of icing shapes. I cut a panel out of the same striped pattern paper, and I glued each icing shape on top of the panel in a way that the panel and borders would be coordinated.

I filled the entire panel with icing borders, trimmed off the edges and stuck the panel to a pink card base, and then I attached my giant shaker cupcake on my custom background using liquid glue.

Next I cut two banners: one out of a yellow pattern paper using a die from the Sliding Window die set and one out of a blue pattern paper using a die from the Stitched Rectangles die set. I attached those banners on top of each other on the bottom section of the cupcake, and finally I cut the word 'Thanks' out of gold mirror cardstock and stuck it on top of the banners.

And that's it. this is the final result. I hope this shaker cupcake will inspire you to make your own version, maybe a holiday cupcake with some pretty Christmas themed papers or a birthday cupcake with rainbow papers? Depending on the papers you use, the possibilities are endless. I leave you with the video right below, and wish you an amazing day. See you next time!
